Can you glue engineered wood over wood tiles?

Glue down engineered wood flooring


Use a trowel down urethane adhesive and in theory it will work just fine. But it's not a great idea, to many layers of potential failure. Whatever you do, don't use a latex or water based adhesive.

Glue down engineered wood flooring


I have old 9" sq. wood floor tiles and it would be a big job to remove the old tile and install new. I figure maybe I can glue the new engineered flooring on top of the old wood floor tiles? Would that work?

Glue down engineered wood flooring


Old wood glues dries up over time. It is not like the glues of today. More than likely the parquet that is down will come up fairly easy. Use a pry bar and a hammer to beat between the parquet and the floor under it. Because it is probably dried out you need to take it up. It will break down and become loose before your new floor wears out. (start crackling) I would take it up.
On the other hand, if it is an engineered that can be floated then you can go over it, but there is still a chance that the floor underneth will still get loose and start crackling.

I have 1/2" thick engineered floor. The sales rep said I can nail, glue or float but suggested glue down is best. Since my old wood tiles seem to be very firmly glued down, I figure maybe I can glue over it?

1/2" engineered..more like 5/8" it's a nail down .I suppose anything with PL can be glued ,,time will tell. Personally, I like to err on the side of caution and do the job right.
